Hi everyone! Jess here — today’s treat was inspired by my beloved Pinterest queue, and I’m so pleased with the final product. The recipe couldn’t possibly be simpler, but it yields the most perfect and sweet results. I love the idea of serving these jam straws at an adorable baby shower (hint hint, Camille!), or even offering them to guests as a sweet something that’s easy to snack on while mingling at a brunch. Keep reading for a recipe certainly worth repeating, and I’d love to hear of any must-try recipes that  you’ve discovered on Pinterest!

Breakfast Jam Straws

Ingredients:

  • 1 package puff pastry (2 sheets)
  • 1/4 cup fruit jam or preserve
  • Flour for dusting
  • Powdered sugar for sprinkling

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line two cookie sheets with parchment and set aside.
  2. Allow puff pastry to thaw as directed on the package.  Dust work surface and rolling pin with flour. Roll out puff pastry until about 2″ larger on each side.  Cut crosswise into two rectangles.
  3. Heat 1/4 cup of jam in microwave for 15-20 seconds, just enough to loosen the consistency.
  4. With a pastry brush, coat one piece of puff pastry with half the jam.  Cover jam-coated piece with the remaining plain piece of puff pastry and gently roll together with rolling pin – not too hard, or your jam will squish out.
  5. Slice into long strips and twist, then place on parchment lined pan.   Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown.  Let cool before removing from the pan.  Sprinkle generously with powdered sugar.
  6. Repeat process with second sheet of puff pastry.

      I think it would be especially pretty with different colors of jam! Perhaps a mix of apricot, strawberry & blackberry. 🙂 Can’t wait to hear how it turns out, Kimberly! xo

    Pastry + jam: two of my favorite things rolled into the perfect bite! I wonder if you could wrap these with nutella…

    Oh, Jess! These are so perfect for lazy Saturday mornings. I imagine kids would love to get in on the jam spreading and puff pastry twisting action 🙂

      You’re absolutely right Ashley! Kids would love the spreading action and they could be easily cut with plastic (kid-friendly) knives, too!

    These will be perfect for my boyfriend’s law school graduation brunch I’m hosting next month! I’m going to use grape jam to match the school colors. Thanks for a great recipe!

    we’re huge brunch people so these are definitely going into our rotation. as a bonus, they would also be a hit with the littles. I bet you could also try this with a bit of nutella inside and mix the two varieties in one basket.

    Jess, I think ‘bacon, rosemary, tomato pasta says it all, doesn’t it? I love collecting “Recipes to Try”!

    These look so tasty, I’m doing a baby shower tomorrow and I think I might need to add these to the menu. I imagine they would taste awesome with fig jam and a little bit of goats cheese.

    These look great! How far in advance can they be made and how should they be stored?
